YOU KNOW GETTING BULLIED ISN’T ALL THAT GREAT. TRUST ME, I HAVE BEEN BULLIED EVER SINCE I WAS LITTLE AND BELIEVE ME IT’S NOT EVEN FUNNY.
HI, MY NAME IS NINA. I’M 15 AND I’M HERE TO SHARE MY STORY WITH YOU ABOUT HOW I HAVE BEEN BULLIED AND HOW I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO DEAL.
Ever since I was little, I have always been bullied people I didn’t know and that just hated me. It’s even more hard being bullied even by my own family, my oldest sister and cousins. I never thought that I would be the one who got picked on all the time. Some people would say that I would never get a boyfriend cause of how ugly I was or no one would ever become my friend. I always thought I wouldn’t have a friend in the world. It’s really hard because your thinking to yourself that they might be right. What if I never get a boyfriend or wouldn’t have a friend to be there for me when I need someone. You are just sitting there crying and knowing deep down that they might be right. This is how I feel all the time from getting bullied. Its hard for me to write this because I remember everything that I have gone through for these past few years.
The first time I started getting bullied was from my ex-step sisters. They would throw rocks at me and call me names. It was just awful. What is worse is that my real dad didn’t stick up for me and just let them continue. I thought that I wouldn’t get bullied anymore but was I wrong. Next thing you know, my family starts up,,, I’M MEAN REALLY!!!! What kind of family does that. It’s hard for me to go through this, I mean I can’t take it anymore. I’m so done with all this hatred against me. The only reason why I’m still alive is because of my brother and mom. They are the ones that have looked over me all this time and so does my sister-in-law, Aimee. They have been the ones to speak up for me when no one else would. Even my step father and step sisters have been there ready to protect me when the others wouldn’t. Everyone tells me to let it go and forget about it. But how can I when they have been doing this to me all this time.
When I see other kids getting bullied at school and I stick up for them cause I don’t want them to go through what I did and still am. I mean I see all these kids in the news killing themselves because of them being bullied. They just don’t want to go through that pain anymore and I don’t blame them. But I’m still here because I know that if I do anything, I will be hurting people that care for me like my mom, brother and other members of my family that have been here for me through all this. We have talked to the police and the school so many times and every time we do we get the same answer, “WE CAN’T DO ANYTHING UNTIL SOMETHING HAPPENS”. So I just go through the pain and just deal with it over and over. It feels like you are trapped in a cage and can’t get out. I have been dealing with the bullying since I was little. At first it wasn’t bad, but now its where I don’t want to be here anymore. I mean a lot of stuff has happened to me that it is hard to talk about but I just try to turn the other cheek and try to move forward. I know that it will be hard but I just have to try my hardest. Sometimes I have dreams about how my life would be if I wasn’t being bullied. It would probably be like flying. I could go anywhere without having to worry about anyone trying to bully me. No more looking over my shoulder and being afraid. I could finally be at peace. Then I wake up, knowing that none of that will ever come true. Monahans is a good town but I hate it here. There are all these people here that hate me and spread all these rumors. I wish I could just get up and move, but we can’t.
When you get bullied it gets harder and harder for you to go through life with so much pain. That’s why I hate to see other people get bullied and go through all this kind of pain like I did.
I want people to know, that if they ever need someone to talk to that is and has gone through it, I’m here for you. You can find me on Facebook under Adelina Martinez. You can send me a message. NO ONE AND I MEAN NO ONE SHOULD EVER GO THROUGH THIS. I’m here for you!!!!
EVERYONE IS THE SAME…
NO ONE SHOULD GET TREATED DIFFERENT!!!
